2011 was kind of My Year to serve the women in the film industry!
The year ended with the fulfilling task of programming the films for Mujeres en Direccion, a young festival in Cuenca, Spain, focussing on the work of women directing film and videoart. Cuenca came as a great surprise to me with lovely museums and a passionate film audience and the wonderfull team around the directór of the festival Marta Belaustegui.
The Sevilla European Film Festival and its artistic director Javier Martin Dominguez let me coordinate their Industry Forum again and I was happy to welcome some great women experts on the panels!
We also organised the II Conference Women in the European Film Industry in collaboration with CIMA (Association of Women in Cinema and the Audiovisual Media in Spain) during the Sevila Film Festival.
In October I proudly presented the second PORYES Feministic Porn Film Award in Berlin and enjoyed a lot of humor and knowledge of the sexuality of women acompanied with their films.
“PorYes“ is the label for films made in accordance with certain feminist criteria, showing the diversity of sexual expressions.
2011 was a year with lots of work and not always easy for any of us and therefore I can only offer my guesthouse in Almeria/ Spain again for all of those who need to Dream, Relax & Reconnect every so often!
See you in 2012!
